Photograph taken February 06, 2013


This picture was taken as part of a 52 week challenge of a photography group I am following on Facebook.

Our facilitator had given us the theme ‘Unconventional’ for this week’s challenge. Now I’d posted my daughter’s pics for previous two weeks for themes ‘Chill’ & ‘Smile’. Naturally the pressure was a bit much from my son to post his pic as well. I guess anybody who has more than one child would understand my plight.

As is apparent, it’s a recursive pattern comprising of 5 different photographs, shot with same EXIF as noted above. I am aware that it’s a bit of cliché. But as my fellow blogger once said, ‘If we limited ourselves to never taking photos or trying things that others had done before, we’d never get anywhere’. I agree.
